Need a new oil pan for Gixxer 750

Well I bought this low mileage (2,400miles) 2001 Gixxer 750 about 2 months ago.... I went to do my first oil change on it today.... Who ever did the oil change on it last (from what i am told it was its 600 mile service performed by the dealer) overtightened the drain plug... I had a 3 foot pipe on the end of my ratchet to brake it loose and when the plug came out so did the threads on the pan. Now I need a new pan. Does anyone know where I can get a new or used pan for not too much lute...

See if someone makes a repair kit. Like with a drill bit, tap, heli-coil, and new plug.

with the heli coils you drill the hole out just slightly larger than it is. Then you tap it with the tap provided in the kit, then install the heli coil w/ the thread locker the kit provides, and wala let it sit for a bit and ya should be good to go. Oh and I think they may be a punch like thing you use after you install the heli coil and give it a tap with a hammer. Its been a few years since I done one, but I remember the instruction are quite detailed. Worse part is drilling the exsisting hole out a bit.

ummm, try checking your local industrial supply co. One of ours here in town has anything you can think of and if they dont got it they can get it. Owner is a big car/bike nut too so that prolly helps

I have dual front discs on my 79 Suzuki and to take off the wheel or do almost anything to the front, the right caliper must come off. So I've had it off a zillion times. About ten years ago I was taking off the top caliper bolt and the aluminum threads from the fork came with the bolt.

After cussing up a storm, I called :http://www.aaametric.com/ in Denver. They sold me a boxed kit with detailed instructions, and the correct drill bit, tap, and metric heli-coil, so I could use the same size bolt. The prices were reasonable compared to trying to get a straight fork for an old bike. I also bought 100 Stainless Allen-head metric screws for the vacuum chambers and float chambers of my carbs for a few bucks.

That's a great find... it can be hard to find random bits n pieces in metric, even from those sites that claim to sell just that, such as smallparts.com or whatever.
